Architectural Model Making for Beginners

There's something very special about little buildings - something both fascinating and beautiful.

To attend this course no previous experience is necessary, just plenty of enthusiasm.

It's ideal for anyone interested in model making such as hobbyists, students, graduates and architecture professionals as well as theatre set designers, photographers and artists who'll find the skills very useful in their own practice.

On this course you will:
